I was looking for information about a book titled "Commodore Perry in the Land of the Shogun", an illustrated children's book, and, lo and behold, I found this:

http://www.bakumatsu.ru/lib/Commodore_Perry_in_the_Land_of_the_Shogun.pdf

Thanks to lax enforcement of international copyright law in Russia, you can read the entire book for free in PDF format.

This is a wee jewel of a book. I'm surprised no one has commented on it yet....

Actually, I think Mr.Bowman posted correctly; this is a book of historical pictures, not fiction. After we created the Historical section, the Textual segment deals with more (but not exclusively) with fiction...  But I agree, he could post I'm Textual.. (or use a hyperlink like we do with Historical Food topics)

I agree; cross-pollinate by posting a link back here from textual.

And, while I'm at it, thanks for the find!
